Hi there and thank you for stopping by! As you may already know, I’m a specialist foster carer as well as being an author. My husband Mike and I look after children who are particularly troubled or damaged by their past. While in our care, we guide the foster children through a specially designed behavioural programme, enabling them to be moved on, either back to their parents or into mainstream foster care. This means that I have to do my writing very late at night, when the rest of my hectic household are sleeping.

Before becoming a foster carer, I was a behaviour manager for my local comprehensive school. It was through working with these ‘difficult’ children–removed from mainstream classes for various reasons–that the idea for my
future career was born.

I am married with two children and three grandchildren. I hope you enjoy my website, and do feel free to e-mail me with any questions, comments or suggestions.
